Painting projects in Ballantyne NC
We have had some large and small painting projects in Ballantyne NC. We seem to find ourselves doing more interior painting and less exterior. I would prefer that due to weather and so forth, but we do both.
The project we are currently working on is a 4000 sq. ft. home that not only has a lot of painting, but also drywall repair. There are also some tape joints that will need to be repaired prior to painting. As with most painting projects. There will be as much time spent on preparing the home for paint as there is painting. The drywall work can take a few days depending on how much there is to do, but taping and mud, sanding etc. is just what it takes. Caulking is another thing that is overlooked and the type of caulking that is used. Most contractors opted to use the cheapest of everything and it will show in the months to come. Any cheap products used on any type of painting projects will show. But, by the time they show up the contractor is well gone.
We on the other hand try to consider that what you are paying for should last more than a couple of months.
Paint is something that you should ask about before they start putting it on your home. The brand of the paint is always the first thing to look for. Mid grade products are just that, Mid-grade. If you are looking for budget painting projects and not quality, then those are fine. Look for brands that you have heard of. Sherwin Williams, Behr, Valspar, Porter and so on are good products, but even those have a contractor grade products. Look for life expectancies and warranties.
I will not go into further details now, but the one thing that I will add is: Don’t cheapen the painting projects that you have on your home. It always comes back to bite you later.
